My Continuing Story of Kodak Elitechrome EB 100 35mm

Let's Go Green with Kodak EB!

Just like I wrote before, I found incredible possibilities in this film that I haven’t tried before.

I’m quite disappointed when I get underexposed results from my Holga 135BC using Kodak EB. At that time, the weather was full of dark clouds. So I think if I shoot at that time, the result will be not as good as the result when the sun is shining bright. And when I see the results, I guess I was right.

Since then, I never used any of my slide film at less than ideal outdoor situations. Until one day, when I shot the Chinese Cap Go Meh celebration. Of course I can’t request God nor the performer to perform with the sun shining brightly. So, with nothing to lose and a very sad feeling, I shot the celebration.

Surpriiise!!! The results satisfied me because even though the sky is white, the object still got that interesting cross process saturation color.

I love my Kodak EB because it’s given me other alternative colors from other Kodak color slide films.

Maybe that’s why nowadays people tend to go green. Yes green, just like Kodak EB gives the color of our photo.

Even though in my opinion, Kodak EB’s saturation is below Kodak EBX’s and EVS’, but it still has the unique color of itself.

Did I have mention that all my Kodak EB is expired? Thank you very much to Seni Abadi, the best analogue lab photo in my hometown, Bandung, Indonesia.

Still I want to say about this film, Don’t be afraid of the dark =)

Well, if you hate the dark you can add a softbox, add a lamp, etc. to maximize the color of your Kodak EB. Unfortunately I can’t afford to add light yet =(
